The Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.
There is one and only one living and true God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is all-powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise.
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.
We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.
We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.
We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby believers remember the death of the Lord Jesus and anticipate His second coming. The bread is symbolic of His body and the juice represents His blood.
It is the duty of every born again follower of Jesus Christ and of every church to endeavor to make disciples of all men everywhere. It is the command of Christ for every believer to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by personal effort and by all other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.
For a complete doctrinal statement, refer to The Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
We believe Jesus gave the Church its mission in Matthew 28:18-20. Therefore, the mission is universal and unchanging for every local church. The mission is holistic, beginning with leading people to trust and follow Jesus initially through Gospel proclamation and then leading them to continue to trust and follow Jesus through the process of discipleship. Our own paraphrase for the Great Commission is the mission statement for our church. Our mission statement clarifies WHAT the church is called to do.
Our method is to lead people to trust and follow Jesus by equipping them to live an UPWARD LIFE OF WORSHIP, an INWARD LIFE IN COMMUNITY, and an OUTWARD LIFE ON MISSION. This is what we all our Discipleship Pathway. Our Discipleship Pathway clarifies the biblical process for how people grow as followers of Christ. It defines our simple strategy for how we will accomplish our Mission. Each part of the pathway contains various environments in which spiritual growth can take place.
God has called every believer to not only partner with a local church, but to gather regularly to hear His word, sing his praises, declare his glory, and encourage one another. It is here that we are learning how to respond to the revelation of God.
These mid-week multi-generational classes are designed to lead you into greater intimacy with Jesus Christ by teaching practical, foundational, and Biblical truths.
D-Groups are weekly, gender-specific small groups that focus on accountability as well as reading, memorizing, and responding to the Bible.
Community groups exist to give you a context in which you can begin to live life in community. Community groups are the primary venue for relational connection, and the place were meaningful Christian relationships, spiritual encouragement, and practical care take place. These groups meet on campus and do a Biblical study or the previous Sunday’s sermon.
As a partner, the expectation is that you will find some way in which to serve in the church. Each area of ministry in the church has opportunities to serve. To get connected with one of these ministries, simply contact the director of that ministry.
The Great Commission is clear, growing disciples make other disciples. We provide various opportunities throughout the year to engage the lost through local initiatives and short-term mission trips. These opportunities not only provide you a chance to engage missionally, but also equip you to live a life on mission.
